    Had the chicken pot pie special which was a huge portion and very tasty. Even too much food for a hearty appetite! Sandwiches are adequate, but nothing to brag about. Good free tasty apps when you're greeted. Staff very pleasant.

    We ate here before a show and really enjoyed ourselves. The portions were quite large and really good deli for around here. My only issue was that it did take a little while for the food to arrive (20 minutes or so), but we were still done in plenty of time. Open Table was a huge help, also, because we got to bypass the long wait and go right in!

    Was looking for a casual place to eat @ Foxwood's Casino. When I saw Junior's Cheesecake, I thought it was a dessert place. I decided to look at the menu & saw that there were many items to choose from & they weren't desserts! My husband had the prime rib & said it was great. We'll definitely go back !

    Juniors is a New York staple but they do a great job of replicating the look and feel at Juniors in Foxwoods. The portions are huge and overall this is a great place to indulge in your favorite comfort foods. Of course, the cheesecake is tops, too.

    It was funny looking at the menu to see a hot dog cost $14.00. Food is average at best. Shrimp cocktail was slimy and smelled awful. Prime rib special was average for the price. Love the pickles and beets.

    One of the few places where you can get comfort food; meatloaf, open face sandwich and of course the great cheesecake. Our server Maureen was terrific.

  • Food OK, Service SLOW

    First time at Juniors. Food was generally good, but my wife's chicken as undercooked (the manager did the right thing, took it off the bill and bought her dessert). The buffallo chicken sauce was not what we expected - not really tabasco, but more a watery ketchup-based thing with a hint of tabasco. Maybe that's a Juniors thing. The main issue was the SLOW service. Initially, one of the other servers was helping our server, but then he wasn't. TWO HOURS for dinner!! The restaurant wasn't even full. You would think Foxwoods would want us back in the casino, not waiting an hour for our food in one of the restaurants.

    WHEN I TOLD THE HOSTESS I HAD AN OPEN TABLE RESERVATION, SHE LOOKED CONFUSED. I ASKED IF THEY TOOK RESERVATIONS FOR BREAKFAST (A FIRST FOR ME TO DO, BUT I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE CROWDED ON THE HOLIDAY W/E); SHE REPLIED YES. THEN I ASKED IF SHE KNEW WHAT OPEN TABLE WAS, AND SHE SAID NO. NO?!? HOW COULD SHE NOT? FOOD WAS ONLY FAIR, AND THE PRICE FOR BREAKFAST WAS HIGH.

    While we were eating we watched the servers and the hostess set up the table next to us for the next party. They were folding up the leaves and when the hostess tried to fold up hers, the fork and knife already on the table fell on the floor. She picked it up - and I could not believe my eyes - put them back on the table to be used!! When the party sat down, fortunately they did not sit at that seat, and so that setting was cleared, but then I watched in more horror as the very same hostess placed it back into the drawer with the clean table settings. The health dept should shut this place down, since the employees (or at least that hostess) obviously don't have even the most rudimentary understanding of cleanliness standards!

    Great place to stop in and get a bite while at Foxwoods. I was looking for something on the smaller size and discovered their Mac N Cheese offering in the side dish menu. Well, I thought I died and went to heaven! Have eaten here before and everything is always great. Friendly & helpful staff too.

    Service is SLOW and the food is very over priced for the value. Basic breakfast for 2 with tip...$40. We didn't get a second cup of coffee without flagging down a server. Disappointing.

    I have been to Juniors before and enjoyed the food and service. It was not busy at all when we arrived, yet it took fifteen minutes for the waiter to even acknowledge us. When we did finally receive our food, some was steaming hot and other parts were lukewarm. The waiter informed us that he didn't get to check on is because he was busy with other tables. We felt completely unwanted.

    We ate here before a 7pm performance at the Fox Theater. Definitely a good idea to make reservations, to avoid any wait. Staff very friendly and helpful. Menu is basic but portions are large. We had burgers and they were cooked properly and tasty, although messy to eat by hand because the bun just wasn't holding up. Our server, Mylinh (pardon if spelled wrong) was terrific, personable and attentive.

    Juniors serves real comfort food in very large portions. The quality of the food is excellent. Service was friendly, attentive and accommodating. Save room for the very large deserts. They are the star of the show.

    "Family" restaurant. Thought the food would be better. It was VERY average. VERY overpriced for average food. Our server, however, was WONDERFUL. Mailynn? We were a large table, a couple of people changed seats after she had taken orders, she joked about it and everyone was served with a smile that never faltered. We even told the manager at the end of our meal how wonderful she was!

    Not the first time eating here. Went here for the awesome cheesecake. My wife who is not a cheesecake person says it's to die for. I also had the southern fried chicken, which was a delicious comfort food meal. Six in all, including our two young kids, we fit comfortably in a circular booth; which also help "contain" the kids' actions and voices! The decor also helped to keep them preoccupied.
